Did you celebrate Sʈ Patrick'ϛ Day?

AS is with tradition, we popped on over to Southport's only Irish Bar, O'Leary's on Cable Street to see what was on offer, on St Patrick's Day, 17 March 2016. As normal we had a most enjoyable time at this unique venue, whose regulars and staffs make it generally one of the best bars on Merseyside. If you attended this venue, did you see the regular 4 legged customers dressed up? Let us know what you did on St Patrick's Day via emailing us to:-
